Hollies - Long Cool Woman Text Guitar Tab

Learn the song with the online tablature player
I haven't seen a good tab on this song yet so I wrote this up.  It's all legit.

Somehow, in a few places* the same note will be played, but one will sound more "twangy"
than the other. I really don't know how this is done.  (Maybe there is more than one
guitar, but I doubt it).

     *Like here ^                             *And here ^

Now play a simple E major chord, periodically putting your pinky on the A string,
4th fret, and lifting your ring finger (This is a great way to build up your pinky):

Saturday night I was downtown
G               A E
Working for the FBI
Sitting in a nest of bad men
G              A      E
Whisky bottles piling high
Bootlegging boozer on the west side
G              A             E
Full of people who are doing wrong
Just about to call up the D.A. man
G                       A         E
When I heard this woman singing a song

A pair of 45's made me open my eyes
My temperature started to rise
B          A
She was a long cool woman in a black dress
A      G              E
Just a 5'9, beautiful tall
With just one look I was a bad mess
A         G                      E
'cos that long cool woman had it all

Repeat the E, G, A over all the rest of the lyrics:

I saw her headin' to the table
Well a tall walking big black cat
When charlie said I hope that you're able boy
Well I'm telling you she knows where it's at
Well suddenly we heard the sirens
And everybody started to run
A jumping out of doors and tables
Well I heard somebody shooting a gun

Well the da was pumping my left hand
And then she was a-holding my right
Well I told her don't get scared
'cos you're gonna be spared
Well I've gotta be forgiven
If I wanna spend my living
With a long cool woman in a black dress
Just a 5'9 beautiful tall
Well, with just one look I was a bad mess
'cos that long cool woman had it all

Had it all
